Three Worlds - M.C. Escher

Three Worlds

1955, Lithograph

Featuring leaves floating atop a perfectly still lake, Three Worlds takes its name from the three areas depicted: the underwater world, where we can see a large koi; the above ground world, which we can see reflected on the water’s surface; and the surface of the lake itself—an in-between area that has captured so many leaves as they’ve fallen from the now-bare trees above.
